Tinder: Campfire API
update: Tinder can listen
update: Tinder is now available as a gem from rubyforge. Check out http://rubyforge.org/projects/tinder for more information.
For a project that I’m currently working, the client wants to be able provide live chat to its users. So, instead of re-inventing the wheel, we decided to try to use Campfire. The only problem is that I need to be able to create and destroy chat rooms automatically, and Campfire doesn’t have an API.
So, introducing Tinder, an API for interfacing with Campfire:
gem install tinder
You can get the source from:
git clone git://github.com/collectiveidea/tinder.git
Tinder can also be installed as a gem or a rails plugin.
script/plugin install git://github.com/collectiveidea/tinder.git
Thanks to Zach Dennis for the name. Feedback and patches are welcome!
